I have been following Mark Batterson from a distance for a while now. I have enjoyed reading his blog and listening to some interviews with him. When I got the chance to review his newest book Primal I jumped on the opportunity.
The premise of the book gets straight to the core of the matter: to rediscover the lost soul of Christianity. Going through four areas of the Christian life: heart, soul, mind, and strength, Batterson discusses each with great detail and illustration. One thing that I enjoyed about Batterson’s writing was his personal illustrations. These always help me understand concepts and ideas better, and he has a way of using personal stories to convey a truth.
This is a great read for the new year. What better way to start off 2010 by getting back to the heart of Christianity.
